Camp Visited and Inspected by  Pioneer  Man.  It is confidently believed by many  that no undeveloped part of the Boundary mining district is today attracting  the attention of the world at large  equal to that of Franklin camp, located  some 40 or 50 miles north of Grand  Forks, at the head waters of the North  Fork of the Kettle liver���a section  that has up to the present been entirely without railway communication of  any kind, and to which a wagon road  is only just being completed by the  provincial government. The Pioneer  man returned, Monday from a trip lo  this heretofore isolated camp, where  he noted the activity that is now beginning to be felt there, due to the almost  universal impression that the mineral  discoveries made there will prove to  be of first importance, with adequate  development.  Franklin camp, according to the  map compiled by Prof. R. \V\ Brock,  of the geological survey of the Dominion, who spent some time in that  district, has a mineralized area about  thirteen miles 111 length by five miles  in width, making what is believed to  lie one of the largest mineralized districts in British Columbia. The area  above referred- to has been proved,  but it is not known how much greater  it may yet be found to be. The geological formation is lime, porphyry and  conglomerate, surrounded by granite  hills, and the ledges all have a northerly trend.  Locally the district may be said to  be divided into several smaller camps,  such as McKinley, Gloucester, Banner  and Minneral Hill, with others springing into prominence as development  proceeds.  Generally speaking the ore of Franklin camp is a sulphide copper, carrying  rather higher values than most of the  mines of other parts of the Boundary.  In addition they carry some gold and  silver values, and in some parts of the  camp galena and zinc have been found  in considerable quantities. But it is the  great ledges of copper ore, self-fluxing  like that of Phoenix and Deadwood  camps, that are relied upon to give  the camp large tonnage when the railway is constructed and development  is sufficiently advanced.  D'scovery nl Franklin Camp.  In the year 1S92 Frank McFarlane,  while hunting and trapping on the  North Fork waters, pick up a sample  of ore on what is now McKinley mountain. This sample he brought to Grand  Forks and showed it to a number of  his friends, who.made up a party and  decided to prospect McKinley mountain with a view to making locations  where the copper sample was found.  The trip was postponed, however, till  1896, when McFarlane located the  ground where ihe ore was found, staking the first claim in the camp. The  McKinley was located that same year  by James Welcher, better known as  "Dead Shot [im,'' who was prospecting on a grubstake furnished by A.  McKinley, of Danville, Wash.  Scores of claims have been located  since that time, all over that district,  and many of them have been developed, with tiie primitive means at hand,  so far from transportation or a wagon  road, to a stage where they can be  made to join the shipping list at acom-  paritively early date.  The leading mine of Franklin camp  is the McKinley, both by reason of  the amount of development so far  done and because of the immense  showing of copper ore made in tl\c  properly. This is the mine that F.  August Heinze, of Butte, made his  record breaking trip to inspect last  fall, resulting in the Heinze interests  taking a bond from the McKinley  Mines, Ltd., on the McKinley, Manna  and Minister claims, at a price said to  approximate $200,000. The visit of  Mr. Heinze to Franklin camp which  resulted in the bonding of the McKinley group, was due to the untiring  efforts of George A. McLeod, of Grand  Forks, who has many important interests in that camp, and who is responsible for thc first development work of  any considerable moment carried on  there. The McKinley is located on  the mountain of the same   name, and  MAP  Of  PP/4MI//V G4MP  contract of several thousand feet,  to test tht ore bodies of the  McKinley. Thus far about Coo  feet of drilling have been done,  with the result that the width of  the ore body has been found to  be much larger than before.  The work is still being continued. The ore, generally speaking,  carries from three to ten per  cent, copper and gold and silver  values, being an excellent fluxing  ore, common to many Boundary  mines. It is understood that  the same interests also ruve  options on several other claims  there.  Other Mine* of Promise.  Franklin camp has many  mines, besides the McKinley,  that give promise of being large  producers, though not having as  much development done on them  as the McKinley. Prominent  among these is the Gloucester  group, including the Gloucester,  G. II., G.H. fraction and Ophir,  located in what is now called  Gloucester camp. This group  was bonded a few days ago by  the owners, Thomas and James  Newby and Lee Morcer, of  Grand Forks, to the Dominion  Copper Co., Ltd., the property  being examined by the manager  of the company, T. R. Drum-  mond. The Gloucester group  has a 50 foot shaft in 13 per  cent, copper ore, and a tunnel  in some 230 feet, intended to  intersect the ore body. The  figure of the bond is understood  to be in the neighborhood of  $110.000, the payments extending over eighteen months.  Last   week    the    Maple   Leaf  group, including the Maple Leaf,  Twilight and Bacon claims,   was   bon-1     _,     ��� ,  ,  ded for a sum said to be $60,000 to ! ��� The C��PPer g���uP* ownc? b>' .

In addition to this a large amount  of stripping and ground sluicing lias  been done on the surface, proving up  the continuity of the ledge. This  work was all done in charge of A. D.  Mcl'hcc, the superintendent, who is  still there.  This spring a diamond drill anil  portable boiler were packed to the  McKinley, with much difficulty, and  the Spokane Diamond Drill Contracting Co. began  work   on   an. extensive  Development work started this week  On Mineral hill, opposite the Gloucester gtoup, the Mineral Hill group  of eleven claims is owned by Hill and  Minion of Grand Forks. There is a  200-foot tunnel and many open cuts,  with a tremendous ore showing, much  like the McKinley, it being one of the  largest propositions of the camp.  The Banner is located on Gloucester hill, and is owned by Frank McFarlane, Wm. Spier, A. E. Smith, Dr.  Kingston and others, of Grand Forks.  It has a tunnel 200 feet in length with  some 30 feet of a crosscut, and a 30-  footshaft. The ore is concentrating copper, with four feet of galena running  $60 per ton. It is the intention to  further explore this property with a  diamond drill.  On McKinley mountain is also located the Jumbo group, including the  Jumbo, I. X. L. and Manhattan, and  situated one and a half miles west of  the McKinley, having the same formation, same capping and same class ol"  ore as the McKinley. The work done  is largely open cuts.  The Morelli group of live claims,  located about four miles south of  Franklin townsite, has been developed  by a nnmber of small shafts and open  cuts on the lime dyke which extends  south from the McKinlev mine. The  group is owned by J. Morelli, who  has uncovered considerable high grade  copper ore.  On the east side ol" the North Fork,  opposite Gloucester creek, is the Dane  group, owned by Hansen Brothers, of  Nelson, who have developed by means  of tunnels and open cuts, having  shown up good copper-gold ore in the  lime and porphyry formation, with  some free gold.  A group of six claims called the C.  P. R. group, owned by Archie Chisholm and James West, ol" Grand Forks,  is located at the headwaters of Franklin creek. This is known as one of  the large propositions of the camp, the  surface work having shown a .100-foot  ledge of magnetic iron copper.  Adjoining thc C. P. R. group is the  Cap. Rogers group, owned by A. L.  Rogers and Lake D. Wolford, and now  having the attention of the owners.  Development has so far been on thc  surface, with a showing similar to that  on the C. 1'. R. group.  Below the Gloucester group is the  Pollard, owned by Alex Oman, Owens,  Joe Knipe, W. ICmmett, Wm. Sargent.  Development consists of two shafts, 20  anil 30 feet, respectively, all in ore tl\e  property having a large showing.  all  this spring. It has a series of open  cuts with a large showing of copper  ore.  'I'he Bullion group, adjoining the  Banner group, and said to have one of  the best showings in the camp, is  owned by \V. G. McMynn, of Greenwood, and John McLaren.  The M.S. recently purchased by A.  E. Smith, Dr. Kingston and others,  is now under development, having the  characteristic iron cap of the camp,  with good copper ore.  On Banner mountain the Alpha, the,  CONTRACT LET FOR  NORTH FORK R. R.  W. P. Tierney & Co. the Successful Bidders.  A dispatch from Toronto last Monday says : A contract has been let  here today to XV. P. Tierney & Co. of  Nelson, B. C, for the extension of the  Kettle Valley railway in the Boundary-  district, from Grand Forks northward  for a distance of about 50 miles. Mr.  Tierney has been in the city for some  days in connection with the contract,  and leaves for the west at once to take  up the work. No figures were given  out but it is said that the expenditure  involved in die construction of the  new line will   be  about   $1,250,000.  H. W. Warrington, superintendent of  the Kettle Valley lines, states that work  will be started at once, and employment given   500   to   1,000 laborers at  will  be lost in grading the line to Franklin  camp.

Development on the Moreen mine,  adjoing the Buckhom in Deadwood  camp, has been steadily prosecuted by  the Alliance Gold and Copper Mining  Co., of which H. H. Shallenberger is  manager. The long tunnel in the  property has been lengthened, reached  the ore body and is now 150 feet in  the ore with no hanging wall in sight.  The ore body shows copper all the  way, and in places is from four to  twenty-four feet wide, being of a splendid shipping grade. With adequate  development the mine should make  one of the prominent shippers of the  Boundary. The work has proven that  the Moreen has the same ledge as the  Buckhom, which is known to have the  highest grade copper ore in that camp.  The property is looking so well that  an effort will be made to equip the  Moreen with machinery, the matter  now being considered by the Minneapolis shareholders, and it   is   not  un-  ikely that it  hnve an electric plant.  ��� ������sfr-ff- -��-3>"�� -��"��"<��"<*-�����'������� <�� <S>-�� <��-*" >���*������-*���*��� ���SMS' ��  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  Miners Are Wanted  There is at present a iarge demand  for good miners in the big mines of  the Boundary country, and probably at  least 100 men could be given positions  here without delay in the several properties. The pay is the standard, $3.50  per day for underground miners and  $3.00 for muckers, eight hours being  the rule. Supt. Hodges, of the Granby Co , said Tuesday :  "There is a scarcity of gootl miners  in the country, and we could employ  from 25 to 50 more good men for  mining and mucking."  This is also confirmed by Frederic  Keffer, engineer for the 15. C. Copper  Co.'s Mother Lode mine, who could  use as many more, the preference being given to men of experience in  mining. In the other low grade properties of this section, as well as in the  high grade mines, which of course,  employ a less. num,licr of men, there is  a steady demand for men who understand their business  Mink.

This week the editor of the Pioneer  made a trip to Franklin camp, for the  purpose of noting the status of the  mining industry in a general way, and  the methods of getting to that point,  both present and prospective. In another column of this issue will be  found something about the mines  themselves of Franklin camp, most of  the data being obtained at first hand.  Located about 40 miles due north  from the city of Grand Forks, and up  to the present without any railway  communication whatever, not even a  wagon road, it is not surprising that  Franklin camp has not forged ahead with  the rapidity of some others; but, un  less all indications fail, that will be  remedied shortly. Up to this year,  only a trail has connected Franklin  camp with the outside world���which  is an expensive and almost prohibitive  method of shipping supplies and machinery to work the mines. About a  month ago, however, the provincia  government began the work of completing the seven miles of wagon road  yet remaining to admit of teams being  taken direct to Franklin City, the new  townsite which is surrounded by mines  in all directions. But a mile or two  of this road now remains to be finished, when the entire camp should and  undoubtedly will feel the immedate  benefit of it. E. Spraggett, with some  thirty road men, is putting it through  as rapidly as possible, and by Dominion  Day a loaded or light team will be  able to go right through.  But, of course, a railway is what is  needed most in that country, and  there seems to be no question but that  the mines will provide a large tonnage  for the first road that reaches the  mines of Franklin. A railway has  been the pet hobby of the large number interested there, and their dreams  are about to be realized. They may  get two railways.  A year ago the Kettle River Valley  lines sent a corps of surveyors into  the field and located a preliminary  line for a distance of 50 miles up the  North Fork of Kettle river, right into  the heart of Franklin camp. '1 his  year the surveys have all been checked  up by H. W. Warrington, the chief  engineer and manager of the company,  the plans and profiles submitted at Ottawa, some thirty miles of them returned and approved, and they are now  being registered at Kamloops.  Meantime railway contractors have  been sizing up the route of the line,  one of the most prominent being W.  P. Tierney, of Nelson, well known in  the contracting world. Even before  these lines are being read, Mr. Tierney  or some one else will be awarded the  contract and be preparing actively for  construction. The surveyed line has  a maximum grade of one per cent, and  a maximum curvature often per cent.,  making it most economical to operate,  which is a great desideratum.  But this is not all. The Great  Northern .low also has surveyors in  the North Fork field, and will, it is  said, build a line some sixteen miles  up to the Pathfinder mine, and may  go on into the upper North Fork country, as Mr. Hill has a habit of going  after tonnage. At present the Kettle  Valley lines have the advantage, with  the choice of routes on either side of  the river, and also having a bonus of  $6,400 per mile, something exceedingly difficult to.secure from governments  nowadays. Therefore, it may be seen  that the North Fork will have adequate transportation facilities in the  not distant future.  In addition to the mineral tonnage  and consequent general business, the  first railway up the North Fork will  be able to secure a tremendous business Irom the splendid forests of mer  chantable timber that are to be found  there, while there are no inconsiderable areas of good farm lands in the  bottoms and valleys, that have already  been taken up and will in time be cultivated.

With the  promised advent of a railway or two,  however, with the mines turning out  well, and with some townsites springing up there, an enterprising Grand  Forks firm, A. Erskine Smith iV Co..  has just placed a regular stage line on  the route. With new equipment and  good horseflesh, the new line is already  doing a good business, running to the  present road camp, and later to the  Franklin City townsite, the terminus  of the wagon road, when that necessary work is done in a few weeks.  This slage line now makes two  round trips weekly, leaving Grand  Forks Tuesdays and Saturdays, which  will be increased as soon as the traffic demands it. It is carrying letters  and express, will soon carry regular  mails, and has already been found to  be a great boon to those in Frank  lin carnp, as well as to those along the  forty miles of route. Leaving Grand  Forks at 7 a m., the traveler is landed at Franklin City at 6 p. m.  The trip up the North Fork is a delightful one in good weather. Driving  up by the Granby smelter and Smelter lake, the road skirts the east side  of the North Fork for a distance of  thirty miles, when the river is crossed  on a good bridge. The west side is  then followed all the way to Franklin  City. Many mines worked in the early  days of the Boundary are passed on  the way, including the English and  French, the Little Bertha, the Pathfinder (where the Granby Co. now has  about twenty-five men at work), the  Volcanic, the Golden Eagle, the Bonanza, and dozens of others. Some  have doubtless seen their best days,  while others are beginning to show  what they are made of, with brains and  capital mixed in the right proportions.  At any rate, the new railway will be an  emphatic stimulus all along the line,  alike to the poor prospector who has  waited many years, and the capitalist,  who is just beginning to tako hold and  realize the potentialities of this favored  district.  MANV   TOWNSITES.  Franklin camp may be said to be  not one whit behind any other mining  district in British Columbia, in that it  has several excellent locations for town-  sites. Of course, they cannot all be  Den vers or Buttes, or like Phoenix,  but their owners have an idea that  they, and they only, ei.ch individual  one, has the Oest location of all at  which to build up a lively mining  center.  At the end of the wagon road, now  being completed, is Franklin City,  owned by the Franklin Townsite Co ,  Ltd., being composed of a number of  enterprising Grand Forks people. That  they are really energetic goes without  saying, for their property is surveyed,  and.will shortly be on the market. Besides this, lumber is now being hauled  for a hotel for B. Lequime, a postofhee  will be established there to be known  as Franklin, will probably have a sub-  recording office, and will be the terminus of the Franklin camp stage line,  the Kettle Valley railway line running  through the townsite. The hotel is  already doing business in a tent, until  the building is erected. The site for  for a town is about all that could be  desired, with an abundance of the  finest spring water running through the  property. A sawmill will also be put  in here. Having the start of the other  townsites, Franklin City bids fair to  hold its own with the growth of the  camp.  Patrick Mclnnis, of Eholt, comes  next up the river, with a chance for a  townsite, which is as yet unplatted.  Then comes William Dinsmore, of  Grand Forks, with a pre-emption that  has a leg building thereon, and for  which he recently obtained a retail  liquor license. Mr. Dinsmore had a  small store here some years ago, when  the placer excitement was on in the  camp, but which has been deserted  ever since.  Adjoining the Dinsmore property is  located the Murdock H. McQuairie,  of Phoenix, pre-emption, which Mr.  McQuarrie is confident will make the  ideal townsite of the lot. There is  considerable good timber on this  property, which should be valuable as  the camp settles up. Next to this is  the Upper Franklin townsite, owned  by l-'. H. Mutton, mayor of Grand  Forks, and G. I". Todd of the same  place. The surveyors are now laving  this off in lots and blocks. This is  the nearest townsite of the lot to the  McKinley mine, and the farthest from  the present end ol" the wagon road,  the railway line crossing all of them.  From the above it can   be  seen that  the  prospective  investors   in   townsite  lots will be able to have  quite   a iiuin  ber to pick from, and each one has it.-,  merits.

I cheerfully recommend Peruna  for Indigestion and kidney disease. "���Arthur Perks.  Pe-ru-na ���A Systemic Catarrh Remedy.  Mr. E. C. Finsonneault, box IU, Pres-  cott, Out., member Order of the World,  of Holyot, writes:  "Peruna is a most excellent preparation, especially for stomach troubles,  constipation and catarrh. It acts as a  stimulating tonic for the entire system,  Induces good appetite and regulates the  bowels.  "I have found it very pleasant to take  and very effective and one of the very  few medicines which deserve endorsement.  "It is often a serious question to know  what medicine is reliable, and I n.m  therefore glad to give my experience  with Peruna, believing that it will continue to givo general satisfaction."���  E. C. Pinsonneault.  Peruna will bo found to effect an immediate aaid lasting euro in all cases of  systemic catarrh. It acts quickly and  beneficially on tho diseased mucous  membranes, and witW healthy mucous  membranes, catarrh can no lender  exist.  Completely Cured by Pc-ru-na.  Mr. J. E. Lacombe, 10ia Chaussi, Montreal, Can., writes:  " 1 suffered for u Ion?; time with "liver  trouble and after having ur-.-tl several  remedies withoutgoud result.-, f resolved  to try Peruna. After a comparatively  short treatment, I am completely cured."  Pc-ru-na for Indigestion.  Mr. Joseph D. Guyette, 12 Vitre BU,  Montreal, Can., writes:  " For more than a year I have been  troubled with indigestion and most  agonizing hoadaches. 1 doctored continually, but got no help until I took  Peruna.  " I have taken four bottles and can  truthfully say that it has entirely cured  rno."  Pc-ru-na Recommended for Dyspepsia.  Mr. il. Lonepro, 3S1 Amherst Street,  Montreal, Can., writes:  " I have used Peruna for a severe case  of dyspepsia and am feeling very much  better. To all that suffer from dyspepsia, I highly recommend  Peruna."
